Houndstooth Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting

I've been busy lately machine quilting Christmas gifts, not quilts that I've made, but quilts that my customers have made as gifts. Terri made this adorable Houndstooth quilt as a Christmas gift for her duaghter-in-law. How awesome is that!?
Terri asked me to custom machine quilt this quilt with some cool modern type quilting, so I decided to stitch-in-the-ditch around all of the blocks.  Then I machine quilted an outline around all of the blocks, about 1/4" in from the seam. Next, I machine quilted swirls in all of the white blocks and straight lines in all of the navy blue blocks. I love how it turned out, modern and clean!
Thanks for letting me machine quilt this cool quilt for you Terri!
